Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb". If you're looking for a tomato that has a big orangish, golden fruit, you might consider the Golden Jubilee. Now this plant of course needs full sun for best production. And some folks say it's not quite as acidic as some of the other tomatoes; you be the judge on that one. I will tell you that a good amount of peat, pearlite in starting the plant will be helpful. Like most tomatoes it needs a good amount of light, it also likes a good organic soil. Now this one takes a little bit longer to grow than some varieties, they're saying about 85 days from the time that you start the plant to the time that you're going to be harvesting. Make sure you plant them probably at least 34 to 36 inches apart, and also of course make sure that if it has too many suckers you may go in and pinch some of the suckers out, but if you want to leave them, you can do that as well. The plant will be a little larger; it'll give you a lot of production. Being a kind of longer season plant, you may want to get it in as soon as your ground is available, in other words after a frost or freeze, that chance has ended, get your tomatoes into the ground.
